My husband and I have been married for 16 years, yes, I was the "other woman" not proud of it, but only willing to accept blame for MY part in the break up of their marriage, not everyone elses. My ex's family and I get along great, we see each other, my current husband an dI have borrowed my ex sister-in-law's condo on the beach. On the other hand DH's "ex-family" makes it a point to exclude me. When my stepson was married I wasn't allowed to attend the rehearsal dinner, that I helped pay for! Several years ago he received a wedding invitation to one of his ex family, the invitation was to him only. It angered me but I let it ride, purchased a beautiful and expensive gift and sent it with both our names on the card. The thank you note, when it came was addressed only to DH.
DH went to the wedding, which was out of state.
So today he receives another invitation to one of that family's weddings, again it is addressed only to him. The inner envelope is to Doug and guest.
I understand that I will always be the other woman, but how rude is it to invite one half of a happily married couple to an out of state event and not invite the other? And to expect a gift, which under normal circumstances is purchased from a joint account.
I understand I'm a little touchy, but how you all react?
